A co-financed OKP scholarship: How does it work?
- The Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) finances the first academic year of your study;
- The remaining period of the study is financed by other means, the so-called co-financing;
- Co-financing to the amount of approximately half the costs, (as shown in the table) is a prerequisite for receiving an OKP scholarship for a 2-year Master's programme;
- If the University of Twente approves your co-financing statement, and you meet the eligibility criteria, you are assured of a pre-nomination for an OKP scholarship. It does not mean you will acquire an OKP scholarship, but it will significantly improve your chances of being selected.
Your own contribution for the OKP-ITC Scholarship (OKP-ITC) 2021-2023 (23 months) amounts to EUR 11,841.
You can apply for the Orange Knowledge Programme scholarship (step 5) if you:
- fulfil the below eligibility criteria (step 1)
- are unconditionally admitted to the Master's Spatial Engineering or Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (see step 2).
Applications for pre-nomination must be submitted in Osiris on 15 March 2021 at the latest.
